The 'Advisory Group on the Teaching of Citizenship and Democracy in schools' published a report on 22 September 1998, often referred to as 'The Crick Report', that set out out the vision and ambition for citizenship education in England. In 1997, David Blunkett MP then Secretary of State for Education appointed Bernard Crick as chair of an advisory group to provide advice on the teaching of citizenship and democracy in schools.
This is a great book for NQTs in Citizenship and for those coming to Citizenship as non-specialists.
"This practical and accessible workbook is designed to support student teachers as theydevelop their basic teaching skills, and increase their broader knowledge and understandingfor teaching citizenship. Newly qualiﬁed and beginning teachers should also ﬁnd it useful."
If you want to train to teach Citizenship education in schools and colleges the details of the number of places and location of training has been released by TDA. Numbers are disappointingly down from 2010-yet there is no doubt that demand is still strong. This year there will be 167 training places at the main PGCE providers-down from 260 in 2010-11. Additionally there will be 15 places at employment based training in EBITT, GTP and Partnerships.
